Environmental Management

Proponents continue to raise concerns about corporate environmental impacts outside the direct climate and energy umbrella, although climate change permeates all of them to some extent. The greatest number (nine proposals) relate to waste, with a new set of proposals in 2019 about plastics, and several reprise concerns about recycling and food waste. Two are on water, down from five last year, and one about a nuclear plant closure has been omitted although another is pending. (Five proposals about antibiotics and pesticides appear under Industrial Agriculture, p. 32.)
